Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

Improving your strengths and working on your weaknesses is not as hard as people think.

When I was younger and was trying to make decisions in my life, whether it was who I wanted to date, where I wanted to live, or even the company I wanted to apply for, my dad would always say, "Jacob, take out a piece of paper, fold it in half and write down the pros and cons on each side of the paper."

What you can also do with this exercise is to replace the pros and cons column with strengths and weaknesses.

This is a great way to assess yourself and find out what areas you need to work on. Of course, this only works if you are completely honest with yourself.

As you learn new things and try to work on your weaknesses, these things are going to change.

If you do this exercise on a regular basis, you’ll become very self-aware of what your strengths and weaknesses actually are. It's a very simple practice that can make a big difference.

This episode of Future of Work is supported by Teamistry, a podcast that tells the stories of teams who work together in new and unexpected ways… to beat the odds.

Each episode tells a unique story and provides practical lessons for your team and your business. I got a sneak peek of season 2 and was immediately sucked in with its documentary-style narration, details about stories I thought I knew but didn’t, and practical lessons that I was able to apply to my business. Check it out at here.
